    Current Employee - Analyst in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of.

    Cons

    Too much to do and management does not understand the employees needs. Very hectic environment. Upper management in US/Canada controls everything and senior management in UK are very scared to lose their jobs so they avoid to tell the reality to them. Senior Manager of Enterprise support keeps sitting in front of computer and does not even bother to talk to the department on daily basis.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BlackBerry full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, excellent work life balance, subsidized meals and free healthy snacks.

    Cons

    Senior management is unfortunately very reactive instead of proactive. Innovation is often crippled by excessive policy and lack of appropriate IT framework. My job (like most) is 85% process, 15% actuall work. Might as well be government.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BlackBerry for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The position offered plenty of perks. One of which was attendance to nearly every major concert, event and festival in the tri-state area. An occasional interaction with an athlete or entertainer. They paid very well!

    Cons

    The senior management wasn't that receptive to change. Also the company being Canadian based, they weren't receptive to more realistic ideas of how to flourish in the American market.
